Liberty Fellowship (LF) stands for the divine inspiration of the Holy Bible.
LF stands for the deity and redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
* That Jesus was born of a virgin
* That He lived a sinless life
* That He died a substitutionary, vicarious death on the cross for our sins
* That He rose physically and bodily from the grave
* That He ascended to the Father, where He ever liveth to make intercession for the saints
* That He is coming again to establish His Kingdom on the earth
LF believes that salvation is by grace through faith, minus and plus nothing. Therefore, we always exalt Jesus as man's only Savior, which means that Christ is the ONLY Mediator between God and man and that no man cometh unto the Father but by HIM.
LF believes that marriage is exclusively between a man and a woman. Accordingly, Dr. Baldwin will NOT officiate at any marriage ceremony between same-sex couples. And in light of the June 26, 2015, Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage, which thereby attempts to redefine traditional marriage, and in light of the fact that Biblical marriage is NOT merely a civil contract but a divine institution given by our Creator, and, henceforth, completely outside the jurisdiction of civil government, Dr. Baldwin will NOT officiate at any marriage ceremony involving a government marriage license.
LF believes life begins at conception. Therefore, we will support lawful efforts in and out of politics and the courts with the goal of ending legalized abortion-on-demand and overturning Roe v. Wade.
LF stands for the Biblical, Natural Law principles that govern every individual, State, and nation—including the Natural Law principles of liberty and self defense.
LF preaches and teaches so as to apply the principles of God’s Word to everyday life—including our political life. Therefore, will not be governed, intimidated, or bribed into preaching politically correct messages or avoid political issues affecting our liberty.
While individual believers will differ on this point, this fellowship teaches that the modern "gift of tongues" is unbiblical. First, the Biblical gift of tongues was the supernatural ability to speak in known, foreign languages--NOT unintelligible gibberish--as clearly seen in Acts 2. This is NOT the gift of tongues spoken today. Second, the Biblical rules regulating the gift of foreign languages is specifically and emphatically noted in I Corinthians 14--and these rules are NOT followed in modern "tongues" services. Therefore, the public practice of "tongues" speaking at the gatherings of Liberty Fellowship will not be allowed.
LF opposes Socialism, Neoconism and Zionism. Accordingly, we do not support the socialistic Welfare State or the Neocon Warfare State. Neither do we believe that the modern Zionist state of Israel represents either historical Biblical Israel or prophetic Israel.
LF stands with Scripture that civil government is ordained of God. It enthusiastically submits to lawful civil government. And it holds the positions of constitutional government in the highest esteem and heeds the command of Scripture to pray for those in positions of government. For example, Dr. Baldwin was given the title (and he has the credentials to prove it) of "Honorary Deputy Sheriff" by Escambia County, Florida, Sheriff Ron McNesby for his leadership in supporting the efforts of the Escambia County Sheriff's office in maintaining law and order. He was twice honored as "Minister of The Day" by the Florida State House of Representatives and once by the Florida State Senate. Dr. Baldwin has had personal audiences with numerous State governors, U.S. congressmen, and U.S. senators, as well as with President Ronald Reagan and then Vice President George H.W. Bush. Dr. Baldwin also counts several judges as personal friends. Any charge of "anti-government extremism" against LF from people and organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is completely unfounded and untruthful. Such accusations can only come from people who hold an extreme anti-Christian bias of their own.
LF is one of the most racially-diverse Christian fellowships in the entire State of Montana. In fact, the racial diversity of Liberty Fellowship FAR EXCEEDS the racial diversity of the State in general. The congregation of our fellowship is happily comprised of Asians, Indians, Hispanics, Blacks, and Caucasians, including several mixed-raced families. The minority races in LF numbers around 20% of the congregation. This is an area of the country where the combined minority races number around 3% of the population. Any accusations of racism against Chuck Baldwin and Liberty Fellowship is complete balderdash. See an illustration of the racial diversity of Liberty Fellowship here:
LF is supported entirely by the free-will financial donations and offerings of those who have a heart to give; but it is not organized as a 501c3 non-profit organization, which means financial donations to Liberty Fellowship are NOT tax deductible. Furthermore, LF seeks not "church" designation by the IRS, and neither will it incorporate or organize so as to qualify for "church" status under the IRC. The true Church is a spiritual organism, not a human organization. Under the laws of the United States, should a body of believers (or any other body) seek and obtain tax-exempt status, that body would immediately fall under the dictates of the IRC regulating non-profit organizations. Therefore, LF has chosen to NOT claim tax-exemption.
LF supports the independence and sovereignty of the State of Montana; it pledges no allegiance to any "New World Order" or facsimile thereof; it will not accept or submit to any attempt to establish a Police State or abridge our freedoms and liberties protected by the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights.
